I think it all slowly started going down hill around birthday. My 80/20 slid to 70/30.. 60/40... you get the idea. Then came Halloween... which means candy everywhere of course. I started out good and bought some organic super dark chocolate from my neighborhood super healthy grocery store. Of course that only started the candy cravings, which led to butterfingers and kit kats, and... well you get the idea. Then we went away for the weekend and completely went off the plan and well... I haven't really gotten back on it since then. I have cooked a Paleo meal here and there, spaghetti squash has become a staple around here, but no consistent sticking to the plan.
I avoided the scale for quite a while, and I'm still refusing to update the weight tracker on the weight journey page, but I have gained half the weight back. I've also noticed that some fun PCOS symptoms have been flaring up more than usual too. In general I feel not as great, and I'm especially not looking forward to travelling like this. I know I need to get my act together, but I seem to have lost my motivation. It was so hard to break the carb/sugar addition... and then I brought it back.
For now, I don't see it feasible to get back to Paleo. We're travelling, then I have a week back, which will inevitably be crazy, and then I have my surgery, and recovery. I'd like to say after I recover I'll be back to Paleo. But by the time I'm back in the swing of things, Christmas and New Years will be coming up. So... I'd like to get back before then, but I think my deadline to get back on plan is New Years. We'll call it a resolution?
I know its a big old fail. I really did feel better/ healthier on Paleo, and I really did want it to work. I thought putting it out there on the blog would keep me more accountable and help me stick with it, and I feel awful admitting it didn't work here. But hopefully the next time I give it a shot it'll stick?
